Scrapbooking is a great a hobby, but sometimes you need to spice it up. Check out how to get your scrapbook pages to literally pop.
You will need
- 2 pieces of card stock
- Photos or other mementos for the pop-up
- Glue or tape
Step 1 Fold Fold one piece of card stock in half and make a firm crease.
Make sure the card stock is the same size as or smaller than your scrapbook pages.
Step 2 Cut slits Cut two slits in the middle of the fold, 1 1/2 inches apart. The slits should be perpendicular and through the fold.
Adjust the size and location of the slits to add stability or variety to the pop-up mechanism.
Step 3 Form the pop-up mechanism Push the small piece created by the slits through the inside of the card. Fold this piece in the opposite direction as the original fold.
Step 4 Add the photo Attach a photo or other memento to the front of the pop-up mechanism. Unfold and fold the paper to test the pop-up.
Step 5 Attach the pop-up Attach the finished pop-up piece to your scrapbook page.
Mechanical devices in books date back to the 13th century, when a poet from Majorca used a revolving disc in his book.
